    stretch album covers to fit screen

    Is there any plans for implementing an option to change album covers to stretch to fit to screen when displayed in full screen visualization mode?

    I'm sure that many collections have album covers of widely varying resolutions, so having them display dead center would make for poor viewing of anything that doesn't match up to the monitor's resolution. WMP usually sets very tiny thumbnail sized album covers....and all my other ones vary from around 800x600 to several megapixel-ish scans.

    And if possible, several modes of fit-to-screen would be nice, like:
    -fit to width of screen
    -fit to height of screen
    -center
    -stretch
    -proportional stretch

    Would be nice touch, maybe for future consideration.

    added it to my list... It did this at one point, will have to check as to why it stopped...

    shouldn't be a big thing to add...

    I believe I did it because some complained about the stretching of their images making them look bad now that I think about it... I will have to think about this...

    Yeah I considered that too, that's why I suggested the different options for stretching, so that if the stretching doesn't look good it could be disabled.

    It would be incredibly nice to have a resampling feature that would make the resized pictures look good, but that might not be very feasible.

    I agree, I will look into it once I get all the bugs out...
